    This stinks

    Feed/cycling issues with the Rossi. Needs to go back to the LGS to get this fixed. Same problem as almost every other NIB Rossi 92. You think Rossi would clean the lever mechanism up a bit better by now. Letting the gun smith handle it.
    Sigh...

    The gun tries to load the bullet into the chamber at a 45 degree angle. The back of the bullet is not even with the barrel.

    Bummer.

    You buy enough guns - you are bound to have a problem sooner or later. I know its dissappointing - but just send it in for warranty repair.

    My advice - from personal experience - stay on top of it - politely and professionally - and it will all work out just fine.

    I've heard this is a timing issue in these guns, is that what others have heard?
    If so, run the tires off that thing when you get it back, that can be a tricky fix.

    Ya I definitely would like a .357 lever - but I am looking at a Henry or an impossible to get Marlin. They don't stay on the shelf long no matter who makes them.

    I recently got a Rossi 92 .38/.357.

    It cycles .38 spl like butter, but at first would hang on the longer .357 (requiring just a nudge on the back of the casing in order to chamber). My break-in strategy is to run the action dirty but well lubed, and just clean the barrel after each session.

    It's now handling the .357 much better, only occasionally hanging up (again, just a quick flip with my thumbnail and I'm off to the races again). I anticipate it will completely smooth out.

    I like it. No regrets.

    My Rossi 92 worked fine, but was real stiff with some rough spots. I stoned the action to take the burs off. Now it works flawlessly.

    oh, the 92 has a long lever travel. Make sure to not "short stroke" it. That will cause problems no matter how smooth the action is.

    I honestly believe that one of the best kept secrets out there is that MANY (expensive), pistols dont work. And boy howdy do I know how bad a feeling it is to buy one, only to have it essentially be no account.

    Although I do not have a Rossi I do have two JM Marlin 1894's. Used to have three but I sold one.

    My 1894 in .357 was very rough at first and would lock up often. I did a lot of cycling and some polishing, and it's now very slick.

    One of my 1894's in .44 would not feed 44 mags reliably, and would "let in two." I had to bend the carrier about 1 mm - that's all it took - and it runs smooth and fault free.

    Center fire levers in the pistol cartridges can be a real pain at first; sometimes they require "tough love." That means a brisk, full cycle. It's not uncommon for them to have hiccups at first. Frustrating, but not uncommon.

    The LGS will fix it up, I'm sure. Keep us posted.

    Well I waited this long to get it, I can wait even longer for my LGS to get it working or get Rossi to do a repair. My LGS will make it all good, I trust them.

    My LGS contacted Rossi. Rossi wants the rifle sent to them for repair under the warranty.
    First time that I have had a gun fail NIB.
